100% Pinot Noir from younger parcels of vines grown in Ata Rangi's various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. Vine age ranges from 5-20 years.
Hand-picked fruit was destemmed with as much whole-berry as possible, followed by 2 to 6 days pre-fermentation maceration. Indigenous yeast and hand-plunged throughout ferment, 2 weeks total tank time and complete malolactic fermentation in barrel. 9 months in 20% new French oak.
This vintage shows a length and drive that belies the age of the vines. More savoury in spectrum than previous vintages, the nose exudes spice, red licorice and a medley of bramble fruit. All carry through onto the palate, with the older vine portion providing real weight and a fine line and length.
